Make images look gorgeous for the web.

Picturesque is an application designed to make images look gorgeous for the web.

With an animated "drag and drop" style interface, Picturesque makes images gorgeous with tasteful effects like 3D perspective, reflection, glow, shadow, curve, and stroke in less time than it takes to open Photoshop.

Picturesque can also beautify images in batch, and with the ability to resize and apply effects on a whole folder of images, Picturesque is an an easy way to make sophisticated thumbnails and refined full sized images.

Picturesque is the final touch to make your images perfect.

Great little app for us web developers.

I really agree with danwarne

"If it could crop and resize the cropped image, and apply the selected effects, that would be GREAT!!"

But danwarne's comment was over 3 years ago! So I guess it will never happen.

Fun app to use and great for quickly applying outline/stroke, curved corners, reflection and perspective effects to a batch of images.

Scaling to precise dimensions is a little hit and miss, but otherwise, this is an excellent app!

This is a great little app. If only it could crop an image, then it would be nearly indispensable.

This is perfect for simple image editing, and I love the interface. It really needs a cropping function, though.

I love it and it save time for me

I really second danwarne's motion ;)

I think this is GREAT -- makes it much easier to make nice web graphics for my blog. However, I think it would benefit a lot from better handling of large images that need to be scaled down. Currently, the scaling doesn't look smooth like the bicubic scaling in Photoshop. Also, there is no cropping functionality, which is the other essential thing when making web graphics.

If it could crop, resize the cropped image, and apply the selected effects, that would be GREAT!!

I'd be able to use it instead of Photoshop about 90% of the time.

Nice app, wonderful features but I hate the interface. It just feels clunky.

I don't think all the features should be stored in an inspector. Usually inspectors are used for less used features but in this app you'll find yourself using 99% of your time in one.

I would love for them to rethink the interface focusing on practicality rather than aesthetics.
